SO excited!

Sooo possibly my favorite make up brand, Sugarpill, is having a sale this weekend!! ASDFIBHA S;OIGFH A;DSIF!!! besides it being a fantastic brand and really high quality, its local to me (also meaning I get my order only 2 DAYS after I order it!) The owner (Shrinkle aka Amy) didn't just slap a sticker on something, she really thought it out, picked ingredients and really oversaw the product development. bravo. I HIGHLY recommended this line. its reasonable too! $12 for a single shadow thats huge (4 grams!), $12 for a butt load of loose shadow (5 grams!), and $34 for a quad palette (I have cold heart <3).
I'm trying to collect the whole line because its just that fantastic, but I'm rather poor. Not poor poor, but where I budget things. Id love to be able to just buy everything! but I cant. This time around I got just 2 pressed eyeshadows in Buttercupcake (yellow) and Midori (green). I can't wait for them to come!!

and heres an inspiration picture for everyone lol (I have a folder on my laptop for when I need ideas)

If anyone finds a picture and would like me to try to recreate it or would just like to pass along the inspiration, please be my guest!

Sephora holiday look

The Sephora holiday looks this year are fantastic! I love love love love love this one:
 And on friday I was feeling inspired by it, so I had to recreate it! I didn't do anything special, just school and work, but thats ok! making life a little more glamorous!

Date Night

My lovely boyfriend took me out on a date last weekend to the Cheesecake Factory in the city. Dates are possibly my favorite thing to do, they're so cute. You get dresses up, look all pretty and go eat. Im usually the one who gets all into in and spends the day getting ready and puts on a really cute outfit, but to my surprise, my bf dressed up too! which really means a button down collared shirt haha!
I was going for a innocent look and didn't want my make up too heavy or else it would take away from everything else I was wearing. So i did a champaign lid with a grey/purple crease and nice winged eyeliner.

OK, I admit it. I stole this look from xsparkage. but it was so cute!! I used my own products, and it came out so cute! I wore it two days in a row (always happens when I do a look I like)


AH! Ive been checking my front porch everyday for my Sephora package. and I settled down to watch Glee on Wednesday when the door bell rang. Let me tell you!! I ran up the stairs so fast because I knew what had come!! Oh and it was so pretty!!!
I bought the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, and I now know why it has two awards! It's fantastic! I've been wearing it instead of my foundation for a few days now. Its very light but not so sheer that I feel like I need more. It evens out my skin and even hides some imperfections (I used concealer for some of the bigger ones). I may not wear foundation ever again! Ok, thats a lie, but I love it!

AND then theres the Tokidoki Robbery palette. OMG IT IS SO PRETTY!!! I've been using the dark green/silver/black/dark turquoise palette lately, and I don't care if its a little heavy for day, its lovely!

continuing cupcake

So the day after halloween, I had work once again. but I was still feelin my cupcake costume. Instead of wearing it again, I just wore the little cupcake I had in my hair. I ended up making them for the rest of my girl coworkers because my boss just loved it! But I also did my make up to match, something I often don't do. I was tired of just boring make up and needed some color!

A regular today came in and was on the phone he goes "whoa dude! you should see this girls makeup! its like a rainbow!!" made my whole day! haha!

ALSO!!!!! at http://www.toofaced.com/: 20% off friends and family sale!! hello! or more like good bye to my paycheck!! Just enter "10GIFT" at the check out! It ends on the 17th at midnight. Ive had my eye on the enchanted palette for a little bit now.
